When you go to Kauai, you might get so focused on beaches and coastlines that you forget how green and lush this island is. This valley, and the views from the lookout, are just so beautiful. It's one activity that is short, simple, and free. What could be better?

Last time I checked, one goes to scenic overlooks to, you know, look at the scenery not a bunch of trees blocking a good portion of it.

Have been to Kauai 3 times in the past, last time was 9 years ago. Every time I'm princeville bound I stop at this overlook because it is that good. Was at this lookout on 9/31/17 and the trees are WAY over grown!!! See reviews from some below.

This lookout is absolutely incredible when you can, you know, actually see everything and take a picture of Hanalei valley! Not sure who is responsible for maintaining this beautiful over look but they get an F MINUS. Night and day difference from the last time I was at this overlook when you could see everything.

The trees aren't a few months overgrown either. They are a few years for sure. I'd post a picture of it here but the picture I took I did so standing on the roof of my car and the trees were still too high. Come on guys. Cut the trees down or take them out completely...

This is a scenic overlook off the highway, so it's a great quick stop if you are driving around or through Princeville. We stopped on a gloomy rainy day and it was still worth the view!

The Hanalei Valley Lookout does offer spectacular views! It's worth pulling off the road and taking in the extraordinary views.

A few hour guided hike and the views were spectacular. The morning fog lifted and the view below was fantastic.
